May 9, 2012 - If you mention the Schapelle Corby case to the average person in Australia, chances are you will get a response that paints her guilty. If you ask those same people why they believe that, they will tell you about the news stories, the 'expose' on her family, or perhaps even mention a recent book which all 'prove' her guilty. (Well, I won't mention the title of that book but it should have been called "The Dead Guy Did It") Now with some of these people you can tell right off you are talking to a rock. Look closely at them and you will see- the lights are on, but nobody's home; compliments of the local state run media, and poker-faced politicians. While some of these people will tell you they are well 'informed', others would say they have simply been brainwashed.
In any case, it appears that this affliction is fairly common in Australia. I call it an affliction because, well, it is. It's called ignorance. Ignorance of the real facts, and content to believe a lie. Some people forget that in order to be "well informed" you need to double check your 'facts' and get your information from a variety of sources. Anyone who has done that, knows that Schapelle Corby is innocent. If all you want to believe is what the local state controlled media tells you and a recent 'book of fables', good luck on that- rock on. However, if you are up for some documented facts on this case that is going to 'turn your lights on', then I suggest you watch an expose of this case from expendable.tv (or click on the video at the top right under Schapelle Corby videos on this forum).
Now with that said, I will tell you truthfully I have nothing against the Australian people. Some people might think that an American has no business telling Aussies what to believe. Well, sorry, but someone has to, and there are also plenty of Australians who have been trying to 'turn the lights on' in Australia for some time now. In case some of you are not aware- the Schapelle Corby case is pretty much a global thing now, and nationality is beside the point. Still, it is the Australian people who are the key to clearing up this whole mess. It's your government, and Schapelle Corby is one of your own. Are you just going to sit back and let her die in that Indonesian snake pit?
Well contrary to the title of this post- we all know the sun still shines Down Under; Not that it does Schapelle Corby much good considering how 'in the dark' the average person is concerning this case. It isn't hard to find the truth if you are really looking for it, it's out there and it's free. Until the people in Schapelle Corby's own country come together on this thing and make a stand, until then, as far as I'm concerned- the lights are out in Australia.
